Obviously this new BG is in it's very early stages, but how do people feel about it?
What are those sha-esque and arena sections? Bosses?
I can see that Blizzard want to use their shiny new Pandaria terrain and structures, and at a glance I imagine the concept involves the Tushui (Alliance) and Huojin (Horde) Pandaren facing off over control of each opposing brewery. Maybe even Ji Firepaw and Aysa Cloudsinger will make an appearance.
My fear is that this battleground will become the new Isle of Conquest, with players avoiding actual PvP at all costs. The enormous map suggests that players will use waterwalking and wallhugging to avoid players, NPCs, towers etc.
If you look at AV and the original DOTA, the terrain itself is very funneled for the most part in both, lots of bottlenecks to intercept/snare the opposing factions, but there are also small holes for escape routes.
